  3. Lady luck smiling on City

    David Mooney

    The narrative is an easy one and one that will probably be seen across your social media pages in the next few days. On Saturday lunchtime, when Manchester City beat Southampton at the Etihad Stadium 4-1, the Blues were lucky. The penalty they scored...

  5. Javi Garcia: A safe pair of hands

    David Mooney

    With Manchester City lifting the League Cup for the first time in 38 years on Sunday, and with the side having to come from behind against a hard-working Sunderland, the plaudits for the victory will -- quite rightly -- fall on the shoulders of Yaya ...

  7. Weary Man City suffer FA Cup stumble at Blackburn

    Simon Curtis

    As January dawns and the good old FA Cup trundles into place, I was casually thinking of joining a pal of mine in avoiding alcohol for the entire month -- a sponsored act of abstinence for a good cause. Then I remembered I support Manchester City. I ...

  8. Three Things: Manchester City vs. Viktoria Plzen

    Richard Jolly

    MANCHESTER -- Manchester City continued their winning ways with a 4-2 Champions League victory over Viktoria Plzen, but there's still plenty for manager Manuel Pellegrini to work on. Considering the level of competition they faced against Plzen, City...

  9. Bridge of sighs

    Simon Curtis

    As if all the breast beating and introspection about Javi Garcia's slowness to turn and track, Vincent Kompany's glass hamstrings and Joleon Lescott's Pellegrini curse was not enough, into this mix of severe centre-half anxiety complex came debutant ...

  10. City's biggest enemy was themselves in Moscow

    David Mooney

    As the players took to the field on a chilly evening in Moscow, onlookers raised questions over the quality of the pitch. At kickoff, it was a minor inconvenience. By the second half, a combination of Twitter and the TV commentary team had decided th...

  11. Poetry and the piano movers

    Simon Curtis

    Dwelling on long lists of excuses, Manuel Pellegrini will tell you, is sometimes a crutch that managers have to lean on gently, when matters call for it. New managers in a bewildering spin of games in a new environment may need them even more so. ...

  12. Defending from the front

    Simon Curtis

    August 2011. Sergio Aguero sinks a memorable debut strike as City begin their season with a convincing 4-0 drubbing of newcomers Swansea City. The Blues would go on to lift their first Premier League title for 44 years at the end of that season. ...

  13. Plucky Levante caught in ugly investigation

    Graham Hunter

    Just a few short months ago I was standing a few hundred metres away from where Levante plays: the Ciutat de Valencia stadium. Juan Francisco Garcia -- or Juanfran, to use his working name -- was showing me the three-minute sprint he used to have ...

  14. Remember who City are

    Simon Curtis

    It is said that divorce and moving to a new house are two of the most distressing processes for the human species to go through. They both cause a combination of the following feelings in many of us: Despair. Relief. Disorientation Frustration. Elati...

  15. Back to Earth with a bump - and three more points

    Simon Curtis

    For a team whose last two matches have seen a heroic win away to the champions-elect and an FA Cup semi-final triumph over the Champions of Europe, City managed to look more than just a little humble against Wigan Athletic on Wednesday. Despite va...

  16. Iron Man made for Luton

    Simon Curtis

    When I made a comment last week that Pablo Zabaleta had been constructed chiefly out of spare parts from Apache helicopters, I was quickly and clearly corrected. It is in fact the Apache helicopters that are made of spare bits that have fallen off (o...

  17. No flowers please

    Simon Curtis

    Manchester City's European campaign passed quietly away on Tuesday night. It left 3,000 bereaved souls in northwest Germany, cold, in a state of disrepair and in growing disorientation, plus many other family members scattered around the north of Eng...

  18. Peering into the future

    Simon Curtis

    There was so much Spanish being spoken around the icy ramparts of the DW Stadium as City strode into town, one could have been forgiven for expecting the night's menu to feature -- writ large in pleasant script -- a large appetising portion of tiki-t...

  19. Problems mount for Mancini

    Simon Curtis

    Another costly error. Another loose performance littered with bad passing and poor decision making. Another questionable substitution. Thanks to it all, the pressure gauge climbs another notch for Roberto Mancini and his boys. First, the costly er...

  20. City new boys weren't first choice

    Simon Curtis

    It strikes me that Roberto Mancini, far from being a relieved and finally contented man, must be stalking the corridors of the Etihad wondering whether Brian Marwood is on the same planet as he is. Marwood with a giant flea in his ear from upstairs, ...
